I still have mine. The first "real" program I wrote was when I was in 4th grade using my dad's Tandy laptop. It copied data using the acoustic coupler modem with a CRC and would retry on failures.

Insurance door to door salesman. Just a couple of months, i wasn't much good at it. It bored me stiff and it showed and lugging the whatever it's called around (on a moped) wasn't my idea of fun.

OK, I can't believe I found this. This was my dream come true at at the very tender age of twelve ...

For some reason I had it in my mind it handled ten bits, but it was only six.

Can you get a negative WEI? It would complement DarkAssasin's negative CPU usage ...

I got so excited I posted real quick, then keep going back and adding edits . The rotary stepping relay was such a thrill ! Sorry for the nostalgia attack.

Edit: the rotary stepping relay was an external Frankenbuild add-on I threw in, sorry! Actual product may vary from that shown .

It did not need one. Remote query and messaging was integrated, but additional comm controllers interfaced via byte-multiplexer channels on "bus and tag" cable pairs.

BTW, that thing operated at a max of 1.7 MIPS and only a few were configured with the ungodly main memory of 8 MB. The base model had 8 kb.

You'll think i am joking, but i really had a big argument with my wife about that. I wanted to buy a camping fridge and install my motherboard in there. Seriously.

She shot the idea down threatening cruel and unusual punishment if i went ahead. Still doubting right now.

2 rep point if you figure what this is for:
